High School Commencement Ceremonies This Weekend

Seniors in the Putnam County school system will be walking across the stage this weekend in three commencement ceremonies around the county, while the Adult High School is also making plans for a graduation exercise to be held in June. Monterey High School seniors will have the first opportunity to receive their diplomas as they take to the stage Friday night starting at seven from the gymnasium of the high school. On Saturday morning at ten, the 2009 graduating class at Cookeville High School will participate in a commencement program from the Hooper Eblen Center. Then, on Saturday afternoon at three, the Upperman High School graduates will be recognized in a program from that high school's auditorium. School officials say they try to schedule the ceremonies at different times so that any school board member or others from the public may attend all three if they choose. The graduation program for the Adult High School will be held on June 5 at 7 pm from the auditorium of Avery Trace Middle School. Meanwhile, the rest of the students in Putnam County must finish out this week before taking a holiday on Monday and then completing the school year on Saturday, May 30, with a 10 am dismissal.
